As The Verge reports, the Elon Musk-supported company OpenAI has announced a massive new milestone in its quest to create robots that can emulate human learning abilities. Revealed in a new blog post from OpenAI, the outfit has created a new algorithm that allows a robot to “learn a new task after seeing it done once” and a human being to “communicate how to do a new task by performing it in VR.” With just one “demonstration,” an OpenAI robot is now “able to solve the same task from an arbitrary starting configuration.” In a statement, OpenAI technical staff member Josh Tobin shares:

“Our robot has now learned to perform the task even though its movements have to be different from the ones in the demonstration. With a single demonstration of a task, we can replicate it in a number of different initial conditions. Teaching the robot how to build a different block arrangement requires only a single additional demonstration … Infants are born with the ability to imitate what other people do … Imitation allows humans to learn new behaviors rapidly. We would like our robots to be able to learn this way, too.”

You can check out a new video from OpenAI — which breaks down the company’s new development — above. Late last month, Elon Musk set his sights on “the future of tunnels.” You can read more about Elon Musk’s pursuits in the field of artificial intelligence here.
